He also scored more than half of his points on the power play in each season from 1954-55 to 1958-59, which was also unusual.
Exactly. The way we figure, Thompson can cover defensive minutes and Stuart can play the energy checking minutes. Henry will be one of the best goal scorers on a second PP unit in the entire game.
And he is good to use 5 on 5 to provide that unexpected offensive kick when opponents are prepared for a grind line.
Honestly, what's the difference between a guy like Henry and a guy like Tim Kerr? Size? Doesn't the speed difference counter that? The difference is, we're using Henry in a role that covers his flaws.
